So I've been in the process of putting together a machine on the Canadian Dell website & discovered that to add the ram listed below costs about $1600 or so:
8GB, DDR2 SDRAM FBD Memory, 800MHz, ECC (4 DIMMS)
I thought that was a pretty high price, so I checked tigerdirect.ca for some similar ram & found these sticks for $130 or so.
OCZ SLI-Ready Dual Channel 4096MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory (2x2048MB) OCZ2N800SR4GK in Canada at TigerDirect.ca
I also found this stick for $85 or so.
Centon 2048MB PC6400 DDR2 800MHz Memory 2GB800DDR2 in Canada at TigerDirect.ca
So can anyone tell me if the ram that dell is selling is in fact different than the stuff tigerdirect has? I've always heard that Dell was a bit overpriced but this is outrageous. I must be missing something.
You can see my previous post to get an idea of what I'm building:
8 Cores w. 8 GB of RAM
